Disappointment - skip it
8 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In search of Asian organized crime films to rival Johnie To's Election I & II (which have become my standard to which other such films are compared), with more drama, critical relationships, pointed words, clever actions, and tense standoffs instead of shooting, kicking, shouting, blood (why do these HK filmmakers love blood?), and car chases, I rented Brothers (which based on the translations used in the film, may or may not be the proper title), and wanted to like it. A few strong characters, scenes, and story with potential shadowed by poor edits, poor translation, weak characters, and lack of development. The search continues.
